Thazara 1.6

Here’s the build plan for Thazara 1.6. It’s very similar to 1.5, the main differences are: spot instead of perform, Follower of the Blood of Vol instead of Sovereign Host, and two of the evocation feats replaced by mental toughness for  more spell points and crit chance. I also replaced the enhancement for spell power force with universal, as I don’t use force spells a lot.

Cerge 8.0

I didn’t really like Cerge as a wolf. Yes, he was a nice sun elf again, but maybe it was the lack of good gear or something, but he felt weak, squishy and hard to level. I’ve been dong TRs in ED sphere order with a few eTRs inbetween… I started with arcane (sorc, wiz, bard), then divine (fvs, cleric, pally) and now I’m working on the primal sphere. The next class would be ranger or artificer, and since I was told that artis aren’t really that good in epics, I decided on ranger. Short told me that I should go pure, so I’ve decided to use a heart to get rid of the iconic default starter class.  Here’s the first draft of Cerge 8.0.

Redoing Maidae’s enhancements

Maidae is a wisdom based monkcher this life, and I’ve been redoing and redoing her enhancements, trying to figure out the best way to do them. During LE/EE raids this week, I realised I had completely forgotten about the +20% doubleshot that I would have needed to have. Since Maidae’s an elf (morninglord), I had the choice of elf AA capstone, or Deepwood Stalker tier 5 enhancement. I spent a good long time last night looking at how many aps the different things would cost me. I needed 8 points in Henshin Mystic for  Contemplation. To get elf AA capstone I needed 15 points in Morninglord tree + 41 points in AA. I also wanted to take wisdom x 4, which would cost 22 ap at the least, and 2-4 points in Warpriest for Divine Might… I realised there just wasn’t enough points for everything I wanted, if I decided to go for capstone.

My other option, Deepwood Stalker would require 32 points in that tree, and meant I didn’t need to put points in Morninglord at all, which saved a total of 23 ap, and I even managed to get a bit more dodge and prr. I am looking forward to give Maidae another try in LE Shroud next week.

Cerge 7.0

After a good long while as a paladin, it was time for me to start planning Cerge’s next life. My plan was to do the classes in ED sphere order starting with arcane, then divine, primal and martial. The release of warlock kind of messed it up, though, but I will continue my plan, just leave warlock out of it for now and take warlock last. Anyway paladin was the last in the divine sphere, so it was time to move to the primal sphere. I decided to start with druid.

It usually takes me 3 days to make a build plan and post it here. It took about the same this time too. Here’s the build plan. Note, it may change along the way, nothing is final or set in stone, and I will most likely enhancements along the way. Short deserves credit for helping with the build.

Maidae 6.0

It has been a good long while since I TR’d Maidae. Over a year to be exact. I did a total of 6 eTRs on this build, though, and now I feel like it’s time to change build. I have enjoyed this one a lot, and may very well return to it at a later point.

For Maidae’s 6th life I would like to do a bow build. Short helped me out a little, and here is my current plan. I will probably adjust the enhancements a bit. ED feats are not quite decided yet.

Firetha 4.0

I finally got around to doing 20 doj runs on Firetha and planning a TR build for her. My idea is to do 2x wizard lives just 1-20 on her. As I will play my other toons as well, I don’t know how fast I will be able to TR, but this will be my first time actually meaning to do just 1-20 leveling. Only time I’ve previously TRd at 20 was when cap was still 20. I did one TR on Maidae back then.

Here is the draft for my wizard life/ lives

Cerge life 6 – build draft

Cerge is my long term completionist project. What it means is that my goal is to one day have one past life of each class on him… may it take how ever long. My idea was to do past lives in ED sphere order, as well as always take the build to cap, which I have done. On the way I also decided to do a few epic past lives while I’m at it. I started in the arcane sphere with sorcerer, wizard and bard… then moved on to divine sphere and did favored soul and cleric… which takes us to the last divine life, paladin.

Now, Darth hates paladins, and except for a short while right after the paladin changes an update or so ago, paladins have not been top dps. My experience with the average paladin has been that they have lots of hp, ok dps, but crappy threat generation.. and for that reason quite bad tanks in the raids I do. The majority of paladins I have asked to tank, have been unable to pull and keep aggro, after the casters and archers start attacking.

With no experience at all in playing or building a paladin, I asked for advice on the forums (see Paladin build ideas?) and from Short. Well, I asked Darth too, but he wasn’t interested in helping me plan a pally. So, I decided to go with Short’s idea:  pdk (I wanted iconic), 18 paladin/ 1 fighter/ 1 cleric. Fighter gives an extra feat and is the default class for pdk, cleric gives cheaper divine might and scroll mastery, 18 paladin for the Vanguard core enhancements. Short had crunched some numbers and told me that the dwarven axe would be the best weapon to use for a sword and board build, and that the best shield is the Madstone Aegis, which I have in the bank.

I wanted a build that is dps, survivable and is able to tank in EE Deathwyrm without needing a healbot. He needs to be able to take a beating and pull and keep aggro of the boss while others are hitting her.

This is only my first attempt at the enhancements, and apparently the vanguard tree is a bit buggy in the planner, so I wasn’t quite able to add all the points as I would have liked, but this is the first idea. Also it doesn’t have support for +6 tomes, so they are not calculated into the mix.

Firetha 3.0 draft

I decided that for Firetha’s next life I would like to do a pure sorc, air savant. I’ve been looking at Farwind: An Air savant Endgame EE DPS Build and I’m trying to put my own twist on it. Firetha will be a 3rd life toon only and will only have one epic past life, so things will be a bit different. I am looking at Farwind’s spells, and I think I want to chose a little differently. I would also like to do drow instead of human.

I’m thinking the following:
Start stats: 20 cha, 14 con, 16 int (for skills).
Feats: empower, maximize, quicken, heighten, spell focus: evo, spell focus: enchant, past life: wiz, greater spell focus: evo, epic spell focus: evo, epic spell power: electricity, ruin and hellball.
Skills: concentration, spellcraft, heal, UMD… any extra points in bluff and diplo

In the initial draft I have selected some spells and enhancements, but will most likely redo then when she hits 20.

Here’s the initial draft of the build.

Cerge 5.1

Not too long ago I TR’d Cerge into my build I posted here. I as always spent 3 days on the build, and I posted it on both ddo forums and the vault for feedback. I was happy with the build plan… until I TR’d and leveled up to 15. Reaching 15, I realized you need 8 levels of fighter to get One with the Blade from the Kensei tree (technically it’s the prereq feat Greater Weapon Focus that requires 8 levels), so with my build plan I would not be able to use centered kensei until level 20. Ok, since ninja spy enhancements allow me to use shortswords I just used those until level 20, and at 20 reset my enhancements for heavy blades… only to realize the only weapon I can use with heavy blades focus is longswords.  Rapiers, daggers and shortswords are light blades.

So, I’m thinking I’ll just reset my enhancements again and go light blades… but then erdrique points out to me that light blades are piercing weapons and not slashing… and I have 4 feats focused on slashing weapons. Meh. No wonder his dps was poop up until 20. So, back to the drawing board, and I’ll have to do an LR. I haven’t done more with the build than change the feats and kensei enhancements, but here’s the new plan:

Maidae 5.0

As it goes, I’m getting ready to TR both Cerge and Maidae. When they hit 28 that is, which may be a few weeks yet, as I play multiple toons. The plan with Maidae has been to do 3 monk lives, 3 fighter and one barbarian, and she’s currently got 2 monk, 1 barb and 1 fighter (current) life under her belt. This life she’s been a cetus copy and I would like to do a handwraps build next life… just because I haven’t done one since the enhancement changes in U19. Before them I sort of knew how to do a good monk, after I didn’t so I didn’t make one, lol. Now I would like to go back to the wraps… and the fact that I just pulled ee Ivy Wraps the other day, makes my choice just a little bit clearer.

So here’s the build I was thinking:
